Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
The fourth season of Sailor Moon anime series, titled Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon SuperS (美少女戦士セーラームーン SuperS Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Sūpāzu?), was produced by Toei Animation and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara. Like the rest of the series, it adapts the manga series by Naoko Takeuchi and follows the adventures of Usagi Tsukino and her friends. The series is divided into two story arcs. The first arc depicts a deity known as Pegasus, entering Chibiusa's dreams to flee from the Dead Moon Circus; they desire to kill him for world domination. The second arc depicts the arrival of the Amazoness Quartet, a group of enemies who dreams to stay forever children, as well as the Dark Moon Circus's leader Queen Nehelenia, the "Dark Moon Queen" and leader of the Dead Moon Circus invasion of Earth.
The season began broadcasting on TV Asahi on March 4, 1995 and ended on February 2, 1996. The series was then licensed by Cloverway Inc. for an English-language broadcast in North America in 2000. The series was broadcast on Cartoon Network's Toonami programming block in the United States. It was the last season to be dubbed by Cloverway. Edited VHSs and unedited DVDs of their adaptation were released. Eventually, on May 16, 2014, the season was re-licensed for an updated English-language release by Viz Media.
Three pieces of theme music were used: one opening theme and two ending themes. The opening theme, "Moonlight Densetsu", is performed by Moon Lips. The first ending theme, used for the first 13 episodes, was "Watashitachi ni Naritakute" (lit. "Wanting to be Us") performed by Miwako Fujitani. The second ending theme, used for the rest of the season, is "Rashiku Ikimasho" ("Let's do it Like That") performed by Miyuki Kajitani, who is credited as Meu.
